-Ratings Breakdown:
It was another clean overnight Thursday sweep for CBS, which bested distant No. 2 ABC by 71 percent. Note to Angus T. Jones: Viewers are still watching the show you hate being on. Red-hot The Big Bang Theory opened the evening for the Eye net with an 11.2 rating/18 share at 8 p.m., which topped the evening and led into veteran Two and a Half Men at a 9.0/14 at 8:30 p.m. Next was sophomore Person of Interest (#2: 9.2/14), which is one of those CBS crime solvers that has a long shelf life, followed by recently introduced Elementary at a 6.8/12 at 10 p.m. Retention for Elementary out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Person of Interest was acceptable at 75 percent.

On ABC, freshman drama Last Resort earned its cancellation stripes with a distant third-place 3.7/ 6 at 8 p.m. Aging Grey’s Anatomy perked up to a 6.7/11 at 9 p.m., which was 91 percent above the 8:30 p.m. portion of Last Resort (3.5/ 6), followed by sophomore Scandal at a second-place 5.0/ 9 at 10 p.m. Retention for Scandal out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Grey’s Anatomy (6.8/11), both Shonda Rhimes dramas, was 74 percent.

Over at Fox, The X Factor led off the night with a second-place 5.3/ 9 at 8 p.m., which was 27 percent below the 7.3/12 on the year-ago evening. That led into relocated Glee at a third-place 3.8/ 6 at 9 p.m., which continues to underperform its former Tuesday 8 p.m. performance. Of positive note for Glee, however, is the ongoing solid DVR figures.

Elsewhere, the marriage of Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) to Criss Chross (James Marsden) on NBC’s soon-to-conclude 30 Rock did not help much, with a fourth-place 3.0/ 5 in the overnights at 8 p.m.. Next on the Peacock net was hiatus-bound Up All Night at a mere 2.4/ 4 (#4) at 8:30 p.m., followed by tired The Office (#4: 3.0/ 5), which concludes this spring, overrated Parks and Recreation (#4: 2.3/ 6) and Rock Center With Brian Williams (#3: 3.0/ 5) from 9-11 p.m. As a reminder, Parks and Recreation shifts to Thursday at 8:30 p.m. out of returning Community effective on February 7.

The CW capped off this final Thursday in November with young demo favorite The Vampire Diaries (#5: 2.3/ 4 at 8 p.m.) and the recently introduced remake of Beauty and the Beast (#3: 1.3/ 2 at 9 p.m.), which is no better than failed year-ago occupant The Secret Circle.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
